    Celiac & Lyme

    YES-- There is a HUGE connection. 1 out of 100 people have Celiac, but 1 out of 10 people with Lyme also have Celiac. The way that the Lyme bacteria goes through your body confuses your immune system-- creating auto-immune disease, like...
  2. Hi there, First of all if you are still symptomatic of hypo then its VERY possible your medication is not adequate regardless of what your Dr says. A lot of people need their numbers to be above the range to be symptom free-- and in my...
  3. Hey Guys, I dont eat any grains and usually use almond butter or coconut flour for my baking. I was wondering if anyone has used the Trader Joe;s Almond Flour? It says its make on the same equipment....but I'm not very sensitive at all....
  4. YES. Half my hand or feet would go numb for hours-- totally numb it was sooooo weird-- then I was diagnosed and I've never had it since. I didnt think it was related until I read about it and made the connection. We forget how everything...
  5. I'm not a Dr-- but I say no. Thats the difference between Celiac and intolerance/ allergy; Celiac causes intestinal damage but intolerance does not. If youve been gluten free and you really feel you've improved dramatically then keep doing...
  6. Hi there! First off let me tell you not to second guess yourself. Dont let people make you think youre crazy. Your feelings and concerns are perfectly valid and if you dont listen to your body you WILL pay for it later. OK so the blood test...
  7. Well it takes several months for those anti-bodies to go down. So you could take it now, knowing it will be elevated or wait another 2-3 months...just dont get glutened again. I've had those clusters and didnt react-- it was probably a bad...

    Camera Capsule?

    well I would think the problems with that would be that there is no actual biopsy if there is only a camera used. The biopsy is examined under a microscope to check for villi damage, its my understanding that this damage is very hard to...

    Jelly Beans

    Yes, Jelly Bellys are gluten free! I have not checked within the last few months but I have not heard of any ingredient changes :-) so dig in!
  10. Yes I agree with the last post--TSH is good, BUT you need your Free T3, T4 and Thyroid Anti-bodies (for hashimotos) tested. If your Dr wont test for them get another Dr, because it is impossible to be properly diagnosed without those tests...
  11. It sure sounds like you have Celiac. Get to a good GI pronto and demand a Celiac panel blood test. The pins and needles is a big tip off, I had the same thing too-- my finger or foot would get totally numb for a few hrs (soo wierd!). Take...
  12. Yes-- very much NOT the same thing. To be honest since your anti-bodies are literally 0, I would say that a biopsy would be pretty useless. If anti-bodies were boarder line or something Id say do it. The biopsy test isnt the most fun to...
  13. When I did the test i was light on gluten for about 6 months-- but really loaded up before the test for 6 weeks-- BUT that was for the biopsy. Are you having a biopsy? I'm not sure how that works because hes so young. I'm sure youre aware...
  14. Well there are a few things that you can do. First if youre taking psyllium I would drink a lot more water-- especially cause you work out every day (im a runner too :-)). I really would double your water intake. Also how much magnesium...
  15. well the alcohol might have gluten... and it doesnt say if its distilled. Do we still say gluten free?
